the 8th of October, Kurdish protesters and antifascists gathered at the
White House to condemn Trump's apparent green light to Turkish fascist
Erdogen's plans to invade Northern Syria. The US Chair of Syrian
Democratic Council spoke at the rally, warning that the Syrian
Democratic Forces, YPG, and YPFJ are holding 70,000 ISIS detainees. An
invasion from Turkey could force their release or Erdogen might liberate
While no direct threat to dump Kurdistan's Daesh(ISIS) sewage in
Trump's lap was made, the implication was clear: an invasion from Turkey
could free ISIS terrorists to attack people all over the world. The
YPG, YPJ, and Syrian Democratic Forces simply don't have the troops or
the equipment to simultainously fight a defensive war against Turkey(or
worse an insurgency against Turkish occupation troops) and continue to
contain that hornet's nest of defeated but still hard-core ISIS
fighters and supporters who were captured after the last terrority held
by the "Unislamic State" collapsed.
Thus, a Turkish attack on Northern Syria is a direct security threat
to any nation and any social group that has ever been attacked by Daesh
or threatened by attack by them. If the world does not care about an
impending genocide of the Kurdish people by the theocratic Erdogen
regime in Turkey, they had better care about direct threats to their own
security unleashed by the same invasion.
As for Trump, there is considerable suspicion that his phone call to
Turkish president Erdogen announcing he would pull the last few US
troops out of the way of the invasion may have contained a quid pro quo.
It is suspected that Trump is asking Erdogen to investgate Biden or
another political opponent in return for a free hand to invade Northerm
Syria. If this leads to terrorist attacks here by freed ISIS detainees,
well, a few terror attacks are usually good for the GOP at any election.
